supporters very welcome.

Day one - our first match against Shropshire was played in lovely sunny weather. Plenty of water and sunscreen required. An excellent win 7 1/2 - 1 1/2.

Day two - today’s opponents are Derbyshire. Although honours were even after the Foursome, the result was a loss 7 - 2.

Day three - The day started with a bit of a surprise, waterproofs were the order of the day. The sun eventually made an appearance mid - morning and the sunscreen was required again. The Foursomes ended 2 - 1 to Lincolnshire and a fantastic effort in the afternoon resulted in a 4 - 2 win in the singles. Overall winning 6 - 3. 

Day 4 - A good morning winning the Foursomes 2 -1 but unfortunately losing the singles 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 resulting in a match score of 4 1/2 - 4 1/2. Derbyshire won now leading after 4 days with 3 points. Still all to play for

Day 5 - A good start in our endeavour to finish in top spot winning two matches and losing one, as did Staffordshire. The afternoon singles ended 3 - 3 meaning we finished with 3 1/2 Match points as did Staffordshire. We had to wait until the final matches had been played as Derbyshire could have finished as winners if they beat Nottinghamshire. The end result was that Staffordshire and Lincolnshire finished equal first. The winner was decided by drawing lots as we had the same match points, game points and halved the match with Staffordshire. Unfortunately the end result was we finished second.

Results from each day may be viewed below.

Staffordshire go to North Devon Golf Club in September to represent the MNR in the County Finals.

Thank you for the support which waS very much appreciated By Birdie and the team.
